that cable looks a little short and the tower height looks a bit low. The air tricks are pretty short and quick. Other than that, thing looks legit!

It looks like the height would be dependent on the height of the poles it attaches to, therefore you could make it as high as you wanted.

Cool to see. I wonder when there will be 2 tower system parks all over the place. While a 6 tower system is a huge investment, these are much less.

We have 4 system 2.0 in 25 min drive from my house. It is fun as an extra, but if I can choose... I'll go for a boat drive 30 min from here.

I don't see anyone doing a turn around on it, does it enable you to land and turn around at the ends or is this like a giant winch?

The company has been in operation for about 3 weeks and we just made our first sale; there will be a cable in Missouri in about 3 weeks. There are a couple small differences between the final production unit and my demo unit, mostly cosmetic, but also the addition of a torque wrench tensioning system.

The cable is about 23 ft off the water right now water level is up about 4 ft so it is normally 25-27, I do wish it was slightly higher. And you can absolutely turn around on the ends. I designed the cable to be as user friendly and easy as possible while cutting down as much complexity as possible.

Rich, your hurting my feelings on my air tricks bro ; I do usually ride with the line shorter to make the landings softer on the knees, but it does work just as well with a full line. Everyone is welcome to come out and give it a try, in Greenville, NC or if you are closer to Kansas City you can wait a few weeks and give it a try out there.

Simple, awesome, economical! See no reason why your product won't sell well.

I am seriously considering ordering this, this is perfect. This is EXACTLY what the wakeboard industry needs.

I know that when we sell our house and are looking for another property I'll be looking for something with space for a wake-lake!

It will actually be near Odessa, Mo. Keep up with my Facebook page for sites where they will be installed. www.facebook.com/thewakeboardcable There should also be pics soon of the final production unit. It is being fabricated right now and will go to the powdercoaters later in the week.

I expect us to announce another sale or two in the next week or so; so there will be other sites to test. There are also several other videos on the website. Just to be upfront with everyone. 8,000 is the price on the first 3 units. After that final pricing will be 9500. Everything is included except for the utility poles and power supply to your site.
